Savant TrueControl transforms any Mac into control interface26 July 2012
Savant Systems’ new TrueControl for Mac app gives users access to the control functionality of Savant’s SmartSystems Apple-based control and automation solutions from the desktop of any Mac OS X computer. These can be used for residential and commercial applications.
"TrueControl for Mac, which matches the look and feel of Savant’s award-winning iOS apps already available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, once again demonstrates how successfully Savant has brought the familiarity and intuitive nature of the Apple user interface to both home automation and commercial control," said Gordon Innocent, Chairman of RGB Communications, Savant’s exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland.
TrueControl for Mac enables users to access and control lighting, temperature, music, movies, security and more from a wide range of Mac computers in a Savant-enabled home or commercial facility. Thus TrueControl for Mac app is an elegant, affordable and convenient way to access and manage a Savant system via LAN at home or remotely.
Savant’s systems allow RGB to provide its channel partners with a solution based on a robust, reliable and well-accepted platform, which is said to be easier to program than other solutions in the marketplace and which allows their customers to make use of their existing Apple products.
The app’s main features include: two-way control of lights, climate, audio and video; the extension of total home and commercial control to the office without the need for an additional Savant interface; delivery of the same automation and control capabilities that exist on other Savant interfaces; the ability to use existing Mac computers in the classroom or conference room to control the projector, audio, lights and more and configuration using RacePoint Blueprint™.
"Our Savant accredited channel partners are able to offer a very attractive home automation and commercial control proposition to their prospective customers, a proposition which gives them considerable competitive edge, a key factor in today’s challenging business environment," added Innocent.
